Sorry but try as you might, you will never equalize racism suffered in the North or the South at the same level as the institution of slavery that the Southern states attempted to perpetuate and expand until its ending in 1865.
Both Sections History should be Told.
NYC Riots have been portrayed as not being Racist. Irish, and I don’t think it was Only a Irish Problem, hunted down Blacks. Hung and Ran them out of NYC, most never returned.
I don’t see why others can’t own up to their History without ultimately comparing it with the South. Just trying to hide behind the South. Yankees continue to do it here. Have done it for 200 years. It is Historical.
